A recent Rasmussen Reports national phone and online survey shows 72 percent of Democrats still believe it is likely the 2016 election outcome was altered by Russian interference.

Overall, 47 percent of likely U.S. voters believe it is likely Russian interference changed the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. Forty-six percent do not think it is likely.


While nearly three-fourths of Democrats still believe Russian interference impacted 2016, only 30 percent of Republicans and 39 percent of unaffiliated voters agree.

Fifty-nine percent of voters said they believe Russia will try to interfere in this year’s midterms. Again, that is driven by Democrats. Fifty-three percent of Democrats said it is very likely Russia will try to interfere — only 33 percent of Republicans and 27 percent of unaffiliated voters agree.
